A box by Wajima Kirimoto

The One story ephemeral restaurant kaiseki dinner by Zaiyu Hasegawa was served on the trays of this stunning bento box, produced by Taiichi Kirimoto, 7th generation designer, producer and owner of Wajima Kirimoto lacquerware company. (in business since the 1700s!). The pale yellow wood has been coated with room temperature liquid glass, which prevents stains, but at the same time allows the wood to breathe. The scarlet trays have been painted using fuki-urushi lacquering technique that highlights the natural beauty of the wood.
